Con Murphy's Irish Pub

Con Murphy's is an authentic cozy Irish Pub in the heart of Center City. Just a stones throw from Philly's best museums, hotels & attractions. Serving perhaps the best pint of Guinness in the city, along with 11 other beers on tap, a classy yet comfortable pub awaits you. With an outdoor patio right on The Ben Franklin Parkway there's no better place for people watching & taking in a nice sunset.


Con Murphy's have created a menu to please all palates from the traditional Shepherds Pie (made with Lamb) & Fish'n'Chips to NY Strip Steaks & the local favorite Philly Cheesesteak. There is always a nice selection of seafood available also. Items such as She Crab Soup, Housemade Hummus, Reuben & Chicken Pot Pie are popular dishes with the locals. Of course an Irish pub isn't authentic without a traditional Irish Breakfast which is available on the breakfast menu that is served 7 days a week along with other morning-time favorites.

"First time, found on Open Table, will go again. Great food, waitstaff was very attentive. Some confusion in what food went to what table, but no biggie.
Only complaint is with Guinness. Pint was poured into a cold glass rather than a room temperature one. I know that sounds like a true "first world problem" but it does impact the taste. Fix that and we're really good!"
